(PRESS RELEASE) LUND, 12-Mar-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 will be used by Bulkship Management AS for compliance in ballast water treatment. The fleet agreement includes 30 PureBallast 3 Compact Flex systems, as well as commissioning and training. Under the contract, the delivery of the systems will take place over the next four years.
All of the systems will have U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) type approval and individual systems will handle flows of 250, 500, 600 or 1000 m3/h.
The PureBallast 3 Compact Flex will be delivered as loose components for flexible installation. An automatic Cleaning-In-Place (CIP) process that safeguards the system’s market-leading performance will also be included.
Alfa Laval will also provide commissioning and training to bring the systems into operation and preparing crews for their use.
Bulkship Management AS, based in Oslo, Norway, is a fast-growing ship management company focused on technical management and crewing.
Knut Johan Steneng, Managing Director of Bulkship Management AS:
“Alfa Laval has provided us with strong support throughout the selection process and planning. Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 was clearly the best solution for our needs, and we know that Alfa Laval’s global network will provide us with smooth access to service and parts.”
“The CIP sequence that cleans the quartz sleeves and UV sensor after ballast operations will keep our maintenance needs to a minimum. But above all it will ensure that we get everything we can out of the UV lamps. The most important thing is knowing our vessels are compliant, whatever the water conditions or quality.”
“PureBallast 3 is a compliance system, so its quality and performance are both very important. But so is the organization behind it. Alfa Laval’s expertise and ongoing support will help us to secure compliance in the long term.”
Alfa Laval PureBallast 3 is the company’s third generation of the leading ballast water treatment technology – and the first solution to be revised G8 ready. It is type approved by the U.S. Coast Guard as well as by IMO and offers unmatched performance in the most challenging waters. More than 2400 PureBallast systems have been sold to date, including hundreds installed as retrofits.
